      The Axis Syllabus

      We are hosting two December weekend workshops on a type of movement research known as The Axis Syllabus. The Axis Syllabus is a body of research relevant to dynamic movement, which draws on many forsm of Dance, Martial Arts, Acrobatics, Yoga, Alexander Technique, Capoeira and other modalities. It offers movement pathways that optimize the body's natural fluency, using physics and anatomical realities to create beautiful, efficient, and safe movement patterns. We are inviting in two internationally acclaimed teachers to offer Asheville movers this rare and profound modality. * * * Logical Progressions: A Focus On Fundamentals The C-Stars Will Be Falling: Accelerated Pathways Through The Floor with Nuria Bowart Friday December 1 6:30pm - 9:30pm (taught by Aaron Birk) Saturday December 210:00am - 6:00pm Sunday December 3 10:00am - 3:00pm Location: Friday 12/1 Center For Art and Spirit 1 School Rd, Asheville, NC 28806 Location: Saturday 12/2& Sunday 12/3 Warren Wilson College, Bryson Gym 701 Warren Wilson Rd, Swannanoa, NC 28778 Tickets and Registration: * * * Interwoven: A Workshop in Axis Syllabus and Contact Improvisation withDaniel Bear Davis Friday December 8 6:30pm - 9:30pm Saturday December 9 10:00am - 5:30pm Sunday December 10 10:00am - 3:00pm Location: Friday 12/8& Saturday 12/9 Center For Art and Spirit 1 School Rd, Asheville, NC 28806 Location: Sunday 12/10 Veda Studios 853 Merrimon Ave, Asheville, NC 28805 Tickets and Registration: * * * Here's a look at The Axis Syllabus:" And here's a look at our guest teachers: NURIA BOWART : LOGICAL PROGRESSIONS: A FOCUS ON FUNDAMENTALS by Nuria Bowart This class is designed to present the basic concepts of landing and launching pads as is defined within the Axis Syllabus. The Axis Syllabus is a body of research relevant to dynamic movement. This class will provide a clear mapping of soft tissue logic for entering and exiting a surface, whether it be a floor or another moving body. We will also practice some spiraling pathways useful for greater ease while changing levels. Tired of all those bruises from that hard floor when you land? Come and practice alternatives. THE C-STARS WILL BE FALLING: ACCELERATED PATHWAYS THROUGH THE FLOOR by Nuria Bowart Falling off our center of gravity allows for us to harness our potential energy and to take a ride on the force of gravity. This class will elaborate on the concept of chronological architecture as it relates to moving in and out of the floor and one another in dynamic ways. The arms and the legs are useful to propel, absorb and pivot around. Acceleration happens, and can be ridden. In this class we will practice riding this body-form safely and efficiently through the energy of a fall. Using some basic movement patterns, such as C-Star, offered through the Axis Syllabus, to help us to better understand useful mechanics for falling. While in this class, the main partner will be the floor, we will be practicing many of the patterns in partners and groups as well. On Nuria Bowart: * * * DANIEL BEAR DAVIS : Interwoven: A Workshop in Axis Syllabus and Contact Improvisation by Daniel Bear Davis The Axis Syllabus offers a groundswell of relevant and specific information into healthy movement habits for moving humans living in a dynamic world. In this dance workshop, we will look at details of our own anatomy, refined over thousands of years of evolution, to gain clues about how to move in collaboration with our own fascinating design. As we grow in our kinetic potential, we can meet our dance partners with increased access to range and choice. This workshop will weave explorations of healthy and creative relationships between the many parts of our selves, with other humans in partner dancing, and within larger networks. We will identify boundaries and limitations as building blocks of resilience. We will explore ourselves and our shared dances as tensegrity structures, cultivating out integrity through tensile resistance. We will investigate the self within interconnected networks and interconnectivity within the self. And well do a whole lot of dancing.
